A.H. Monajemi; S. Masoudian; A. Estaki; N. Nematbakhsh

Volume 4, Issue 1 , January 2010, , Pages 23-37

  Designing timetables, for example course timetables in an institute, is one of the most complicated and time-consuming challenges for personnel. Automating it, not only can help the personnel to manage their work better, but also can be considered as a desired sample to assess the ways of planning and ...  Read More

Sensitivity analysis of penalty function parameters in operating optimization models of multi-purpose tanks

S. Ali Mohammadi; F. Ali Moradi; E. Jabbari

Volume 1, Issue 4 , October 2007, , Pages 265-273

  One of the most important pillars of optimized multi-purpose reservoir optimization models is the definition of a penalty or loss function. Due to the variety of operating goals and the complexity of the system, they often use alternative functions instead of using profit and cost functions, which only ...  Read More
